All 26,000 acres of Fall Creek Falls State Park contain some of Tennessee’s most rugged beauty. Sharing its moniker with the waterfall of the same name, numerous other falls can also be found cascading through the park including Cane Creek, Piney, and Virgin Falls. Hike through the Cumberland Plateau and enjoy exploring 56 miles of trails in the park, countless natural caves, and even an 18-hole golf course!
Looking to rough it? You’re in luck. A strenuous four mile hike brings you to Virgin Falls, featuring 9 primitive campsites below the falls for the more adventurous camper.
For those seeking a less demanding camping experience, look no further. With over 220 campsites, camping at Fall Creek Falls State Park is a breeze and provides every luxury you could ask for. All sites come equipped with grills, water, tables, fire rings, and access to numerous bathhouses. Almost half of the sites have sewer connection and some will accommodate RVs up to 65 feet in length. Satisfy your every need at Fall Creek Falls!
Our favorite place
Our weekend started and ended rainy with cold/sunny days in the middle, but still always love going to FCF. Lots of hiking and views to take in. B loop is our favorite for camping (large sites that provide some separation/privacy and lots of shade). Broke down camp in heavy rain so it was nice to find hot coffee and a biscuit at the snack bar on the way out. Snack bar also has local craft beer on tap and does growler fills. The park has a General Store with basic grocery and camping/hiking supplies as well as a decent sized gift shop. Bundles of wood for sale but if you talk with the park staff there is always free, cut up wood somewhere in the park for the taking from them clearing downed trees.
We were in a pop-up camper on this trip, and it was fine, the sites are fairly close together though, so not much privacy. The bathrooms are just ok. The toilets didn’t have seats, which was weird! The park is amazing, so the shortcomings in the RV sites can be overlooked! Lots of deer walking around, tons of fun stuff to do.
This is one of my absolute favorite spots to camp! The walk up sites are amazing, plenty of distance between sites, wildlife galore, deer will walk right up to you, they are everywhere. Very peaceful. You’ll want to bring a cart to carry gear, as it can be a little walk through the woods to get to the walk in sites, but it is well worth it!
We just love this State Park! The sites are wooded; and there is tons to do. Hiking, biking, SUP and lots more. The falls are amazing!
beautiful place to be the staff was great and always super helpful!
Fall Creek Falls is one of my favorite places to camp & hike in the Middle/East Tennessee area. Beautiful scenery, an awesome waterfall hike, and a lovely SHADED camping loop contribute to some of my favorite family camping weekend memories.
We visit Fall Creek Falls at least two times per year. Every time we visit we experience something new and exciting! This trip we took advantage of the canoes & kayaks you can rent (at a low price) and paddled around the lake. We also took advantage of the pool that was on site. The pool is very clean with plenty of chairs to lounge in. We prefer to stay in loop B. This campsite is very wooded and has sites that are spaced out that don't make you feel like you are on top of eachother. The falls are always breathtaking and trails are short for those who don't like long hikes or are novice to hiking. This campground is a must for those who like to experience the great outdoors!
